I wonder if Trump is right....Is Global Warming just Fake News?

So basically what happened is that normally this super cold air is kept locked up in the artic by the high temperature differences keeping the jet stream in place (mostly).

As the artic warms, this difference becomes less, allowing the super cold air to spill out futher South. As the planet warms, expect to see more of this, ironically.

It's telling that yesterday despite the freezing temperatures in North America the overall planet was 0.5c warmer than usual and the artic was 3.4c warmer.
